Genomic DNA probes were made for five members of the complex of mosquitoes found in Papua New Guinea. Specific DNA probes were developed for , and three sibling species, No. 4, No. 5, and No. 6, by differentially screening total genomic DNA libraries of individual species and sibling species with homologous DNA against heterologous DNA labeled with P. Probes ranged from 273 to 630 bp. Identification of species can be made from squash or dot blots using only a segment of the mosquito (i.e., head, thorax, abdomen, or even legs), allowing for concurrent analysis of the remainder of the mosquito for other epidemiologic characteristics.
